The two Donald Trumps

As the 2020 presidential election hopefuls assemble on the political left, their mantra appears at this point to be taking away things from us they believe are surely hurting what they believe is our imperiled planet, and giving us a bunch of free stuff that now cost us a lot.

There is much that can be said with regard to the left’s ability to simply give everyone free Medicare, and or a guaranteed wage for all, but for now, suffice it to say I will only remind you of a couple of things. We have un, and under-funded entitlements to the tune of somewhere around $30 trillion to $50 trillion dollars at THIS time, and a national debt of nearly $25 trillion dollars.

Nuff said on that for now.

What I’d like to remind those thinking voters out there, is of the left’s desperate need for the American voter to make the upcoming election about a person, in particular, their crafted version of Donald Trump.

The liberal left have spent the better part of the last two years vilifying, maligning, and slandering our president in the political arena, and especially in left leaning media venues. They have spent more time seeking to create a version of Mr. Trump, that has clearly become a Frankenstein’s monster, and to rational, discerning voters a sad commentary as to the integrity of some of the news institutions we had previously trusted.

It is my hope going into this election cycle, which appears to be lining up to be yet another mudslinger’s ball rather than a campaign of what each candidate could do for this country, that we will stay the course. Remember the Obama years, and the mediocre economy we were told was as good as it was going to get, “2% economic growth is the new normal,” and things like “if you like your insurance plan you can keep it.”

Remember also how we voted not for what we thought was the best candidate, but the one that sucked less, and would most likely NOT continue Obama 2.0. It didn’t turn out so bad.

It’s also turning out the only collusion may likely be between the Obama administration, the FBI, and their spying on the Trump campaign during the 2016 election (in my humble opinion). The president has been vindicated. Well, everywhere outside the liberal press.

In conclusion, it is my hope, that free thinking independents like myself will not take the bait, and make the next presidential election about a person, but about principles. And remember which of the two Donald Trumps out there is actually our president. They would love to take us back to finish the job Obama didn’t quite accomplish.
